I'm taking care of a sick kiddo today so I will be brief!
Okay, okay okay. Brief-ish.
Friday afternoon my contact at Alliance told me that it's his understanding that all of the big 6,500 shipment ship-out to US backers have gone out as of Friday, but he was seeking confirmation and tracking information still as the close of business hit. So, I won't have certain confirmation of this happy event until Monday earliest, and I definitely won't be sending out tracking for those remaining shipments any earlier than then either.
So, this means we've stuck the landing on our promise not only to ship within March, but deliver within March. (I will indulge in a small pat of my own back here, because that's a timeline I had to work out before I launched this campaign a full year ago. Pat pat, there you go, back! You done good! Who's a good back? You are!)
There is no cause to worry about your package not arriving until we hit April. Most packages will get to their destination in about a week, and this past Friday was one week before the end of March, so that's just, like, math, dude. Also there were a bunch that were shipped out last week and their ability to report on tracking hasn't caught up to that volume yet, so stay tuned!
So assuming that's all as told, are there any stragglers? Yep. 43 people who should be getting shipments have not responded to BackerKit at all in the months they've had to do so. Another 4 have as-yet unresolved card charge issues that have gotten no attention from them for a couple months as well. So if you're one of those 47 folks... well, you know what you need to do: https://the-dresden-files-cooperative-card-game.backerkit.com/
In addition, there are ten backers in the USA who did respond to the BackerKit, but well past the deadline, and I've been holding onto their orders until I got word that the 6,500 were done (since those were responses done by the deadline). Since I've gotten at least tenative word that this is so, I'll be sending those over to the warehouse to ship later this coming week. Those ones will take until a little into April to deliver, perhaps, but them's the breaks when sailing past deadlines. :)
